Ted Cruz Goes on Sad, Whiny Rant After Fox News Called Him Out

Whenever I listen to Sen. Ted Cruz speak, I can’t help but wonder what reality he lives in. While I don’t think he’s an idiot, you must have an amazing amount of gall to say – and then defend – the things that come out of his mouth. Much of which isn’t based on facts and is often flat-out hypocritical.



Take his argument against Donald Trump. Despite the fact that there’s absolutely no way he can win the nomination outright, he’s staying in the race hoping that he can keep “The Donald” from winning the nomination by hitting the delegate mark of 1,237 so the party will choose him at the Republican convention in July. You can bet if the situations were reversed and he was the one up nearly 300 delegates while Trump had been mathematically eliminated from reaching the magic 1,237 threshold, he would be throwing a fit because Trump was still in the race.

But despite the fact that Cruz has been eliminated from reaching the 1,237 delegates he would need to clinch the nomination, he’s staying in. And while he stays in the race, he’s using some rather unethical and shady (though legal and within the rules) tactics to try to position himself as someone the party might pick in July.

This was a point Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked him about recently, leading to a rather heated exchange between the two.

Well, as Cruz usually does, he followed up his exchange with the Fox News host by going on a sad, whiny rant where he hit his usual talking points, claiming Fox News has an agenda to help Trump by attacking him. You know, his go-to “the media is out to get me” shtick he uses whenever he’s asked a tough question.

During an interview with The Dom Gordano Program, Cruz was asked about his tactics going on “behind the scenes.”

“Well listen, Fox News has got to decide what stories they want to air and what stories they want to tell,” Cruz said. “I’m not going to worry about who they’re rooting for and what surrogates they put on and what messages they push. I’m gonna focus on my own positive message.”



This is classic Ted Cruz. Whenever he’s called out concerning something he’s lied about, or something unethical he’s done, he claims media bias, then suggests the person pressing him on his questionable comments or behavior is out to get him in some way. Then again, that’s what most liars do when they’re confronted by someone asking them to defend their lies. It’s tactic derived from conspiracy theorists who typically attack any information that debunks their absurd beliefs as “part of the conspiracy.”

How his supporters don’t see through this b.s. is astonishing.

Though you know things have gone off the rails in the GOP when Republicans are now openly criticizing Fox News – a cable news network that’s basically served as the media arm of the Republican party since its inception.

    Worse, I’ve said it before and will say it again, the Faux questions weren’t difficult questions. Anyone with the sentience of a rock and running for prez would be looking at the delegate count, be working to get the “magic” number, and would expect that a news show would ask them what they are doing.
